Napa Valley

Napa Valley 11" x 14" oil on canvas
This is a painting I did for a client at the gallery, it's from their trip from the Napa Valley. I'd love to visit the Napa Valley one day and go on a wine tour. When I studied abroad in Italy, I went to an old winery that claimed "roots from the 13th century" or something, tasted like a smoked wooden barrel; it made me appreciate a dry Merlot. Ooh-dreams of wine country!

Cosmic Rain

 Cosmic Rain 10" x 10"  acrylic and gold leaf on canvas, 1.5 " profile
Buy it now!
In this diptych I played with three shades against black, it made for a nice color palette. I started these pieces with a neutral red-purple base, with red and eventually gold paint, finishing with the gold leaf. I signed my initials on the side of each as you can see in the last photo. The paintings are sealed with a gloss varnish and are ready to hang!
